Puppies On Acid
5 stars It only took 8 years and numerous mishaps for this album to see the light of day. Was it worth the wait? Well from the start we have a noticeable change in musical direction. Sure the speed and technical elements are still there, but its driving force is orchestral and choir arrangements. When Sons of Winter and Stars kicks in, you know you are in for a treat. One of the most epic songs of the year in any genre! Throughout the album I hear little nuances that reminds me of what makes Moonsorrow so amazing, and no Wintersun doesn't exactly sound like Moonsorrow, they just seem to know the right elements to put into a song to make it truly epic. And I'm not just talking song length. Although the majority of the songs are somewhat longer. Wintersun seems to have a great sense of when to back off and let the song breathe and when to kick it back up a notch and put the pedal to the floor. So was it worth the wait? Well that all depends on how long you think it should take to write and record an album on this level of awesomeness. For me it was worth the wait, but I wouldn't want to wait another 8 years for part 2 of this album. So they better get their crap together... Haha
